Massage for Runners

Why do runners need massage?

As a result of regular training there is a build up of toxins in the muscle tissue that needs to be removed in order for the muscles to function properly and get the oxygen and nutrients they need.

In order to get the most out of your workout, you need fresh legs and muscles. Massage helps to loosen the muscles and increase circulation providing a fresh start after a week of intense training.

Most people do not take the time to stretch enough and massage assists in manually manipulating and stretching the muscles.

Sports and Deep tissue massage will not only supplement the lack of stretching but will reach the deeper layers of muscle tissue that aren't easy to stretch on your own.

Regular massage will help you perform better and recover quicker.

Sports massage is a modality of massage used before, during or after competition to prepare the body for peak performance, reduce muscle fatigue, reduce muscle tension and to prevent injuries. Sports massage can be aimed at healing strained muscles and allowing healthy muscle to reach peak performance while minimizing the risk of injury.

Raleigh's Absolute Body Balance Massage offers sports massage and deep tissue massage for runners; long distance, competitive or pleasure. New clients receive their first one hour massage at a special rate of $55. Please call 919-841-9344 or visit to schedule your appointment.
